My son's head was also perfectly shaped when he was born. In fact, we used to comment on how round his head was from the sonograms before he was born! However, when he was about 4 months old, we started noticing that one side was flatter than the other. We rotated the bed and alternated his sleeping positions but he still had one side of his head flatter than the other. My doctor said that it would re-shape when he started sitting up. After that, his head did round out evenly. I don't know if your child's situation is more pronounced than my son's. Perhaps the reason they wanted to wait until she was a year old before seeing the specialist was because they want to see if her head will also round out on it's own. I hope that is the case.

Best of luck to you.
